Annabelle Margaret Wrayton (Parkinson), known as “Bella”, to her friends and family and the “beauty of the family”, passed away in her home on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, in Richmond, VA.
Annabelle was born on September 6, 1951, in Surrey, England. She was the youngest daughter of a British Royal Navy family eventually moving to South Africa and then settling in Richmond, VA. She was a beloved registered nurse with a tenacity for care that kept patients in touch with her for years after. Along with her love for her patients; she loved all her cats, dogs, parrots, and horses over the years. A simple pleasure for Annabelle was serving up a delicious meal with a heavy dose of naughty humor.
Annabelle is survived by her former husband, Trevor Wrayton; their two children, Lara Vann-Coleman and Charlotte Wrayton; and one grandchild, Bella.
The family plans to hold a private service at sea with oysters, champagne, and Neil Young songs in the background.
“But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night”
-Neil Young – Harvest Moon
